It's an organization that knows what it's doing.
When you have well run organizations there is always a reason for trading someone. In Escobar's case it is somewhat odd that a young player with a lot of potential upside at a position that is difficult to replace is traded.
I think it is more an indictment of Escobar when Cox and Schuerholz both give up on you than anything else .
